doubts over breakfast



P: "I read that we should practise 'being the babies' and asking ourselves all sorts of questions about our lives in utero. I tried it but it freaked me out."


N: looks up from his breakfast and raises one eyebrow


P: "One of the questions was 'are all of my movements greeted with joy?' ....
Sometimes I swear at them when they kick me. I'm failing already."


N: with mouth full of breakfast "no you're not."


P: "but what if I don't love them enough?"


N: not even bothering to look up from the toast he's buttering "Rubbish. Look how much you love the rabbit and he doesn't even like you."


P: ".....true."
